Verse 1

Spare me the tears, please keep this goodbye brief.

Let me walk away before I'm consumed by this grief.

This is not the first time that I'm left with a broken heart.

But this is the only time I feel my future's been torn apart.

Chorus

Someone make me realize this is real, this is the end.

I'm refusing to accept that we're over, I want to pretend

Like I'm not feeling emptiness gnaw at my skin,

Like my heart isn't heavy while I feel paper thin!

I don't even want to pick up the pieces this time.

Without you in my life there's no rhythm or rhyme!

Verse 2

Tears have abandoned me, leaving lumps in my throat.

I swallow them down; try to brush your dust off my coat.

Memories keep on playing like they are pages in my journal.

Sometimes it seems like this pain I feel is meant to be eternal.

Chorus

Someone make me realize this is real, this is the end.

I'm refusing to accept that we're over, I want to pretend

Like I'm not feeling emptiness gnaw at my skin,

Like my heart isn't heavy while I feel paper thin!

I don't even want to pick up the pieces this time.

Without you in my life there's no rhythm or rhyme!

Bridge

I wake up alone in the mornings,

And all your thoughts crowd in my head.

There's nothing left for me anymore,

Why should I even bother to get out of bed?

We were supposed to be together forever,

But look, we ended up here instead!

There's no last chance, no redoing,

This time we're cutting off the thread.

Chorus

Someone make me realize this is real, this is the end.

I'm refusing to accept that we're over, I want to pretend

Like I'm not feeling emptiness gnaw at my skin,

Like my heart isn't heavy while I feel paper thin!

I don't even want to pick up the pieces this time.

Without you in my life there's no rhythm or rhyme!
